Sparkle #68: Shoes for Everyone!

Hello everyone, how is your week looking so far? It’s Wednesday already, and to get through the rest of the week, I am sharing some drool-worthy fashion eye candy on the blog today – shoes from the fashion runways! Shoes are indeed a girl’s best friend, and no woman can have enough pairs to last a lifetime! The best part about having a shoe fetish is that one can justify spending money on them without feeling guilty about owning multiple pairs, because no matter how our weight or shape changes with time, they will always fit! The Fashionista team compiled a wonderful slideshow of the 50 best shoes from the…

Sparkle #63: Keep calm and travel to Sicily

Aloha! It’s been a while since I compiled a travel guide for one of my favorite destinations! So for today’s travel tales post, I am putting together some quick resources on a place close to my heart, and right on top of my travel wishlist! I know we have covered Italy in the past, but this post is dedicated specifically to the autonomous Italian region of ‘Sicily‘ – the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The inspiration for today’s destination comes from one of my all time favorite movies: ‘The Godfather’. I was watching this movie yet again over the weekend, and couldn’t help but marvel at the beauty of…

Sparkle #60: Eat Pray Love Quotes

Hello folks, how is your week coming along? 2015 has been a busy year for me so far – lots of work, this lovely blog, daily Yoga and weekly Zumba classes have kept me interested and occupied. But amidst all this chaos, my reading took a backseat. Today, I tried to revive my reading habit and picked up a novel which I intend to finish over the weekend. And while browsing my library, I came across one of my all time favorite books – Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.  There are some books which leave a deep impact on you and play a big role…

Sparkle #39: XOXO, Gossip Girl

Hello lovely people! Hope your week is coming along well. If not, I have a great tip to perk things up! I suggest you watch an episode from one of my favorite TV series – Gossip Girl. It is fun and scandalous, and a perfect way to take your mind off work and other stresses. The show documents the lives of a group of young adults born and brought up in the privileged Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. Needless to say, each episode features strong characters, beautiful people, dramatic moments, luxurious fashion and scandals that will keep you thinking all…

Sparkle #30: Fun with F.R.I.E.N.D.S

Happy Wednesday folks! When I am feeling low on energy or stressed with work mid-week, I turn to my favorite TV show, movie, music track or fashion magazine for some much needed relief. So for this week’s Wednesday post, I decided to talk about one of my all time favorites – the TV show F.R.I.E.N.D.S. You have to be living under a rock to not know about Friends – a popular sitcom on the lives of 6 friends in Manhattan. It ran for 10 straight seasons from 1999-2004 and created history in the world with its iconic run. When the series finally ended, it left a…
